The Science of Parking

Host: Michael Krasny, of KQED Radio(archived program)
Guests: Donald Shoup, fellow of the American Institute of Certified Planners, professor of urban planning at UCLA and author of “The High Cost of Free Parking”
Jay Primus, program manager of SFpark, a project of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency

“Would you be willing to pay more at parking meters if it meant you’d be more likely to find an open spot? As part of a pilot project, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has distributed smart parking meters throughout the city that can track where parking is densest and set rates accordingly. The goal is to keep one parking spot open on each block. We discuss the impact of the program so far.”
